    Reusing Starsan Question

    I've done some searching but can't seem to find a definate answer. I bottled yesterday using a starsan for the first time that I mixed it up with RO water in a 1 gallon milk jug. I also picked up a bottle sanitizer that worked amazing and more than halved the time it previously took to...

    Creating Amber DME from Light and Dark

    After a trip to Vancouver I had a chance to sample some Granville Island Brewery Lions Winter Ale. I did a search and someone else had been looking for a clone of this beer but never got any responses. I'm looking for a solid winter ale recipe that I could possibly tweak or get suggestions on...

    Cleaning and sanitizing

    I did some searching and haven't really found the exact answer to my question. For cleaning I have some pink stuff (not sure the exact name of it but I know is a chlorine based cleaner and sanitizer if you let it sit long enough) and metabisulfite for sanitizing. My first batch I cleaned and...
